Candied Dates
 

Candied pecans are simple to
make. Just coat pecans with a generous amount of agave, with a pinch of
salt and a pinch of cayenne. Then spread them out on a dehydrator sheet
and dehydrate overnight. The agave will be liquid when they’re warm,
but will harden up quite a bit as they cool.

    Where do you find a cup of raw cashews for 50 cents?? I haven't seen them for less than $10/lb, even in bulk bins.

    These look amazing! Unfortunately though, agave isn't actually raw – even if the label claims it is. 🙁 You could use Lucuma, Yacon, dates or whole leaf Stevia in it's place. http://www.living-foods.com/articles/agave.html
